About Janet MacFall
I live with my husband in the foothills of NC. I spent my childhood vacationing and visiting my grandparents at the beach. Our daughters enjoyed the ocean with us as they grew up. We now have 3 small grandchildren, and I want the chance to share this joy with them.
Janet MacFall purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Janet MacFall chose Caswell Beach
The first time I saw Oak Island, which was about 3 years ago, I fell in love. The natural setting, the beautiful beach and the birds made me think if I wanted a place at the beach, this is where I would be happy. The condo is bright and spacious, with more recreation space on the ground level. We have done extensive renovations and updates, and equipped it with everything we can think of. The separate full laundry room is convenient. We use the ground level enclosed area as recreation space, which can be opened up for grilling or closed for seating and bumper pool.
What makes this Condo unique
Heron's Rest is unique because it is on quiet Caswell Beach on Oak Island. It sits in a recognized maritime forest, surrounded by natural areas. The beachfront is owned by the neighborhood association and will never be developed, so it is a beautiful, wide and peaceful place. The golf course is a short golf cart ride away for tasty snacks, a restaurant and activities.

Absolutely perfect from the moment we booked :)
We were apprehensive about booking on VRBO as our past experiences have not been the best, however, from the moment we started having questions about the property - Janet was nothing short of detailed, honest and accommodating! The place was perfectly located near the beach as well as walking distance to the pool. I would recommend renting a golf cart to travel to/from the beach, local restaurants and just cruising around the streets of Caswell Beach/Oak Island -- it was nice not to have to drive anywhere in a car :)
I would highly recommend staying here and don't hesitate to ask Janet any question because she will not only give you an honest answer, but she will give you great detail to make your experience there absolutely incredible! Can't wait to go back!
Thank you! We enjoyed having you and your family as guests. I hope you have a chance to let us host you again. Best wishes for a nice rest of the summer.
Great location, quiet and spacious
Everything we needed was there. The beds were very comfortable. Having linen included was nice and having soap, paper towels and toilet paper was very nice.
Perfect for our family of 6, with plenty of room to relax.
Beautiful beach, easy and close access to golf, pools, and the ocean. We will stay again!
Thank you for letting us be your hosts at Herons Rest. I’m so glad you enjoyed it and I hope you do have a chance to let us be your hosts again.
Comfy condo with a wonderful view, close to the ocean and the pool.
Oak Island is a gem of a getaway. The beach is beautiful and this comfy condo is close enough to the beach for even a two-year-old to walk back and forth. It is also next to one of the outdoor pools, which was lovely and relaxing. The unit has tons of windows and a wonderful view of the Oak trees that give the Island it's name, and the golf course it is situated on. It felt very private and was very restful, like we were in a cottage. Also of note: The beach sand was replenished this year, so the beach is now extra wide and goes on forever. We loved it. Great for families with kids!
The condo was very clean and had everything we needed.
The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back.
Thank you for the nice note, and I hope we can host you for a future visit.
Exactly as advertised. Very comfortable for extended family of 6.
The property was well maintained in a nice quiet area. Short walk to beach and shorter walk to the pool. Eveything you need is within driving distance. The area was very nice and quiet. We plan to return as soon as possible.
Thank you for letting us be your hosts.
